      1. [S2655423131] A Pettingell Genealogy: Notes Concerning Those of the Name, John Mason Pettingell, (Boston, 1906), 5.
        "Richard Ingersoll came from Bedfordshire, England, to Salem in 1629, under contract with the Massachusetts Bay Company to take a place in the force of planters they were gathering. His family was to be brought over, and he was well spoken of by the company's secretary in a letter to Gov. John Endecott. [See Suffolk Deeds, I.] He maintained a ferry at Salem in 1636; had large property. He died in 1644. His will is interesting.

        'July the 21th: 1644
        I Richard Ingerson of Salem in the County of Essex in New England, being weake in body; but through Gods mercye in pfect memorye, doe make this my last will & testament as followeth, Vidz:
        I give to Ann my wife all my estate of lands, goods & chattells, whatsoever, except as followeth viz:
        I give to George Ingerson my son six acres of meddow lying in the great meddow:
        It. I give to Nathaniell my youngest son a percell of ground with a little frame thereupon, which I bought of John Pe... but if the said Nathaniell dy, without issue of his body lawfully begotten, then the land abovesaid to be equally shared, between John Ingerson my son & Richard Pettingall & William Haines my sons in law:
        It. I give to Bathsheba my youngest daughter two cowes.
        It. I give to my daughter Alce Walcott, my house at Tow... with ten Acres of upland & the meddow after my wives decease. [...]'

        It has been asserted that a certain house at Salem was built by Ingersoll and was the original of the romance by Hawthorne - 'House of the Seven Gables.' Ann, the widow, married second John Knight, Sen., of Newbury."
